Plugin Alliance has released Tantra 2 by DS Audio. The plug-in lets you go wild with sequenced multi-effects in two layers. Turn any audio track into something completely different with this fireworks display of rhythmic effects.
DS Audio Tantra 2
The concept behind Tantra 2 isn’t completely new or unique. If you like to chop up your audio tracks using sequenced effects, you’ve now got a choice of many interesting plug-ins like Infiltrator, Shaperbox, or Lunatic, which came out just a couple of weeks ago. But Tantra 2, which is distributed under the Plugin Alliance umbrella, offers a twist: Everything you see is available in two layers.
The effects section offers six effects: filter, distortion, delay, lo-fi, flanger, and glitch. These can be adjusted separately for the A and B layers. Each layer offers its own set of stereo inputs and outputs. This means that you can use the layers in parallel or in a series and effectively mix two separate effects chains, which opens up many creative possibilities.
Everything is controlled by the Modulator section. There are eight modulators, which can be programmed in a 32-step sequencer. By modulating the parameters of the various effects, this allows you to create complex patterns that range from subtle motion to all-out destruction.
The master section offers separate level and pan controls for the two layers, as well as global reverb, equalizer and exciter effects.
If you like to fire rhythmic salvos of effects at your audio material, Tantra 2 puts a well-stocked arsenal at your fingertips. It’s not like DS Audio has reinvented the wheel, but if you like sequenced effects, be sure to add this one to your list.
